Research Experience
Senior Researcher, Korea Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology
Senior Researcher (Principal Investigator), National Institute for Mathematical Sciences
Research Interests
(1) Developing mathematical/statistical models, algorithms and software for analyzing high-throughput genome data
(2) Identifying molecular markers and their functional networks that are associated with disease
To this aim, we analyze microarrays (gene expression, SNP, miRNA, and methylation) and other omics data in an integrative manner. In particular, we develop and make use of gene set analysis methods to identify robust pathway-based signatures and regulatory networks, develop robust clustering algorithms to classify subtypes of disease and reverse-engineer the intracellular networks of RNAs and proteins. Machine learning algorithms such as hidden Markov model and support vector machine for sequence classification are also of our interest.
